Memphis-based Corrugated Container Facility Receives Second Safety Award

Smurfit-Stone Container Corp., an integrated manufacturer of paperboard and paper-based packaging, announced in a recent news release that, for the second time since 2002, its corrugated container manufacturing facility in Memphis, Tenn., has received the Tennessee Governor's Award of Excellence for Workplace Safety in recognition of its safety achievements in 2005 and 2006.

"This award marks an outstanding achievement by our Memphis team," said Steve Klinger, Smurfit-Stone president and chief operating officer. "It proves that holding ourselves to a higher standard, focusing on our core safety values, and working safely every day produce dramatic results."

The award honors Tennessee employers and employees who achieve a required number of hours worked during a calendar year without workplace injuries serious enough to cause a lost-time or restricted-duty incident. The number of hours is based on the number of employees. At the end of 2006, the Memphis facility's 108 employees had completed 89 months without a recordable incident and 118 months without a lost-time accident, which adds up to more than 419,000 man hours without a lost-time or restricted-duty incident.

Smurfit-Stone operates approximately 170 facilities and employs approximately 22,000 people.
